The Little Sister

February 27, 2009

 The Little Sister

Lexi is the little sister in more ways than one. She is the youngest in the family and yes, she is also the smallest. How is this possible? Her big brother is Atlas! He outweighs her by about 40 pounds, although she probably has a little more growing to do.

As we watched them play today, we tried to imagine all that wrestling inside our homes…

The Creepy Pig

February 24, 2009

Amanda brought this really creepy pig one day to the daycare. It really isn’t very attractive but the dogs seem to love it. They don’t get to play with it very often as it isn’t the toughest toy ever made but they sure have fun with it.

Ruby played keep away…

… and won!

Mac and Maggie Mae played tug…

… until he cracked under the pressure. (If you look closely you can see Mac holding a small piece of him. You might need to click on it to see it full size.)

Goodbye creepy pig. I won’t miss you but I know the dogs will.

Not Just For Dogs

February 19, 2009

The Prairie Dog Canine Rescue is hosting their second Microchip Clinic on March 8, 2009. This is a great opportunity to get your pets microchipped. The cost is just $40 (about half the regular price) and 100% of the proceeds are going to the rescue. You can get your dog and/or cat microchipped! Microchips can help put your mind at ease by knowing that your pet always has ID on them, even if they lose their collar.

Fore more information about the Microchip Clinic, visit the Rescue’s Blog or call Bobbi at 403-320-0528 to book your appointment.

Is everyone tired of the couch pictures yet? I’m not!

My Funny Valentine

 My Funny Valentine

Gus is moving in to give me a kiss. I tried to tell him Valentine’s Day was last weekend but he just wouldn’t listen.

Gotta Keep Moving

February 17, 2009

Harley just ran, and ran, and ran this morning outside. He refused to stand still for a photo – he probably had to keep moving to stay warm.

 Gotta Keep Moving

Tucker looks like he is standing in a thick fog, but it is just his breath.

 Gotta Keep Moving

You could barely see through the fence this morning there was so much frost stuck to it.

Just a Little Dirty

February 12, 2009

We couldn’t resist trying out the new door yesterday. This is Buddy trying to figure out how to get through the dog door.

 Just a Little Dirty

Amanda had promised me that the dogs wouldn’t get dirty, but the dirt splatter on Miko’s face, is just a hint at the mud under her belly (which I’m not going to show you!). Just a Little Dirty

Opening New Doors

February 10, 2009

The pups are getting some “new” digs in the next little while. We’ve had many discussions on how we could arrange the play area and allow the dogs in both areas access to the outside whenever they wanted. We finally figured out an ideal solution but it involves some rearranging on fencing, additional rubber mats for the floor and a new door.

 Opening New Doors

Our first step was a new door. That is Frank from next door putting it in for us. We built a little fenced area for him so he wouldn’t have a bunch of little helpers slowing him down.

In the next month we hope the new mats will arrive and then we’ll rearrange everything else. Stay tuned!
